Student Emergency Fund
The Student Emergency Fund provides direct financial assistance to students who have lost wages so they can pay bills, secure remote-learning technology and access food and health care. Emergency funding is provided in the form of a one-time grant, which does not need to be repaid. The value of the grant will vary according to the needs of the student, but cannot exceed $6,000. Awards typically range from $350 to $1,800 and are allocated based on type of need.
